English Summer Pipe Tobacco by Samuel Gawith is made from natural leaves, which have sustained a long, ageing process. This gives English Summer pipe tobacco a great, cool slow burning and delicate flavour.

Medium Mild to Medium Full Very Pleasant

This is a very lively tobacco !It has a very classic taste to it . It has a great aroma from the tin which really draws you in . Rubbing out and filling is very pleasurable . The initial light is lovely and the flavor does not dissipate as the pipe burns down but stays full . The burn is cool and the smoke is delectable ,thick and traditionally Virginia in taste . I don't think you will be disappointed with this !

Hmm. According to the blurb at the top of the page: "...made from natural leaves." Really? As opposed to what, artificial leaves? And where pray do these leaves come from? Tea; the front lawn...? Because I have been left seriously underwhelmed by this concoction.

But let us rewind a bit. We are presented with a slightly chunky and moist mid-brown flake, so far so very Samuel Gawith. But then strange things start happening when you first take a sniff, what is that in there? None of the typical aromas of the purported Virginia, instead a rather sickly sweet essence of rose hip.

Things don't improve on lighting, where there is not much more than the sensation of warm air enveloped by a strong sense of Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Something has clearly been added to the "leaves" and it has just made the blend too sweet and cloying for my tastes.

I really don't know what to make of this, I am working from a small sample so maybe there has been a quality issue here. But I can only base this review on what is in front of me. Very disappointing indeed.
